  • Or hear old Triton blow his wreathed horn.
  • Hear the mellow wedding bells.
  • Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness.
  • And murmuring of innumerable bees.
  • The crumbling thunder of seas.
  • That solitude which suits abstruser musings.
  • The scurrying furred small friars squeal in the dowse.
  • Hear the lark and harken to the barking of the dark fox gone to ground.
  • Dead in the middle of little Italy, little did we know that we riddled two middle men who didn't do diddily."
  • It's hot and it's monotonous.
  • Tundi tur unda.
  • With the sound, with the sound, with the sound of the ground.
  • On a proud round cloud in a white high night.
  • I never seen so many Dominican women with cinnamon tans.
  • Up in the arroyo a rare owl's nest I did spy, so I loaded up my shotgun and watched owl feathers fly.
